Note: A newer version of this document exists. This document was replaced by 350.2R-04.

This report presents recommendations for structural design, materials, and construction of structures commonly used for hazardous materials containment. This includes reinforced concrete tanks, sumps, and other structures that require dense, impermeable concrete with high resistance to chemical attack. Design and spacing of joints are considered. The report describes proportioning of concrete, placement, curing, and protection against chemicals. Information on liners, secondary containment systems, and leak detection systems is also included.
